Once again, Democrats get it wrong. These ladies are awesome.

Published

on

Time and time again conservatives have heard the charge by liberals that the GOP isn’t diverse enough, that the vast majority of office holders and candidates are older white men. The insinuation, of course, is that the Republican Party is somehow racist or exclusionary to minorities.

Well, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, as is demonstrated by the six black women who are running for Congress in the November midterm elections.

Here’s a brief introduction to these extraordinary ladies.

Mia Love — Running for Reeelection in Utah’s 4th District

Running for reelection, Mia Love, made history when she became the first Black female Republican elected to Congress and the first Haitian American elected to Congress from the state of Utah in 2015. Prior to that she served as mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah from 2010-2014. She defeated her Democratic opponent Doug Owens twice in 2014 and 2016 to win her second term. The Hill reported that her challenger Democrat Ben McAdams is leading her in the polls by six points as of October 2018.

Aja Smith — Running for California’s 41st District

Aja Smith grew up in Moreno Valley, Calif., raised by both her mother and grandmother who worked long hours as nurses, providing for her and ensuring she had every opportunity that her peers had, according to Smith. Both of Aja’s grandparents served in the U.S. Military. Her grandfather was a veteran of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Her great uncle was a Tuskegee Airman pilot. In 2002, Smith joined the United States Air Force Reserve. In 2007, she was deployed to Qatar and stationed at Al-Udeid Air Force Base during Operation Enduring Freedom. If elected, Smith would become the first African-American female Republican to serve in Congress from California.

Virginia Fuller — Running for Florida’s 5th District

Virginia Fuller, a registered nurse by trade immigrated to the United States in 1976, gaining her citizenship in 2000. For nearly 38 years she’s lived in California, but now a happily transplanted Floridian for the last two years, according to Fuller. In 1989, she established and operated two pediatric care facilities. One was a 24-hour Emergency Shelter Home for abused and neglected children located in Oakland, Calif. The other was an Extended Nursing Care Facility in Richmond, Calif. licensed by the State Health Department.

Liz Matory — Running for Maryland’s 2nd Congressional District

Liz Matory is a small business owner and author of ‘Born Again Republican,’ the book about what she learned after leaving the Democrat Party, connecting with voters as an independent and discovering that she is a conservative. Matory has said that she is on a mission to encourage more people to learn the truth about the democrat’s agenda to diminish the Republic and degrade the power of the voters through partisan gerrymandering. After running for Congress in 2016, she became very active in party building efforts across the state with the Maryland Federation of Republican Women and the Maryland Republican Party.

Jineea Butler — Running for New York’s 13th Congressional District

Jineea Butler, from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a social worker in her day job and who has a true heart for her community. Butler started a company called the Social Services of Hip Hop, a music program she introduced to New York City schools. She also created the Hip Hop Union nine years ago, claiming it has had both a nation and international impact.

Charlotte Bergmann — Running for Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District

Bermann was born and raised in the historic city of Memphis, Tennessee and describes herself as a devout follower of Jesus Christ. She formerly worked for FedEx, where she retired in 2000. During her time with the company she worked as a Technology Project Manager. She now owns and operates a small family business. One of the things she plans on doing if she gets sent to Congress is to push legislation that will insure healthcare is affordable and is the responsibility of patients and their doctors without intervention from the government. She also stated she is a proud supporter of President Donald Trump.

The next time the left tries to say the GOP isn’t diverse, pull this out and show them that’s simply not the truth.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
